Empaths | Caretakes | Therapists | Social Workers,
You are a lighthouse in a storm
people are being drawn to you.
It is so important that you take care of yourself right now.
It is so important that you meditate, scream, cry, shake as much as possible.
Dance into a frenzy
Be consciously aware that you are holding not just your own feelings but the ambient dross of all around you.
Paranoia of the selfish entitled horders
The real fears of people who can not financially support themselves through these shutdowns
The panic of misrepresented numbers
The dread of those in isolation
You are being expected to function and provide support to people while you yourself maybe dealing with your own crisis.
While you your self may be triggered by all these other people being triggered.
I am so sorry
To every store clerks, government worker, teacher, mental health care worker, sex worker, nurse, doctor
I am so sorry that you are expected to keep so calm, so level headed, so “professional” while this spins around you.
I see you
I see your humanity
This is my prayer for you✨
May you be so fucking blessed
So tightly held
So deeply loved and supported
May some deep magic move around you to shield you mentally and physically from the onslaught
May you be seen and treasured by all who come into contact with you
When you lay down may you sleep peacefully
When you walk this world may it be with ease
May your showers and baths cleanse more than your body
May your spirit be fed and nourished
You are a lighthouse in the storm
You are a candle in the dark
May you find moments of hope and joy
May you have peace
May you not burn out
